I love course formats and lately I’ve seen some really cool ones.  Here is the OneTopic format for Moodle 2.0 which provides a tabbed format (similar to the Animated Slide and Tabbed formats we’ve seen previously).  The tabs can each have a custom name (so you can increase the navigability of your courses with text cues) and it’s automatically formatted by the number of course topics you have, which is a bit of a misnomer (as there are obviously more than one topic contrary to what the format’s name suggests).

Post Pages - Post Inline - WIRIS

Cool stuff:

  • Easy to use and pretty slick.
  • Blocks are persistent throughout the course which is nice
  • The “jump to…” option gives alternate navigate through courses
  • Customizable tab names
  • Colors match your theme
  • Current tab is identified by a different color

Download the format from here: http://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=format_onetopic.  Install it to the course/formats folder for your Moodle and voila!
